Red microalgae extract helps skin appear more firm and lifted. If you're pregnant add a layer of protection from pesky stretch marks with this cream as well.

Exfoliation is one of the most important skin care routines you should incorporate into your skincare for radiant, glowing, younger-looking skin. BeautyRX is a daily gentle exfoliation peel that will give you glowing and shiny and smooth skin. Neal Schultz, MD, a dermatologist based in New York City, also creator of this product says that weekly exfoliation just won't do a very good job of removing those dulling discolored dead cells that accumulate daily for the consistent results that you're looking for in younger, glowy skin.

12. Elta UV Physical Broad Spectrum SPF 41

EltaMD UV Physical Tinted Facial Sunscreen Broad-Spectrum SPF 41

Sun damage is one of the most common factors for old and flaky looking skin. For this reason, you should always wear sunscreen with a strong SPF under your makeup. Elta UV is a favorite to Arielle Kauvar, MD, a dermatologist based in New York City because it doesn't irritate even the most sensitive skin (we use it after procedures), it's water-resistant, and has a transparent tint which is great for going sans makeup."

What should be the proper routine for applying anti-aging skincare

L'oreal Paris is one of the most respected beauty mogul companies in the world and with good reason. Here are some tips in overview on the proper routine for beauty and anti-aging. For more visit their site, L'oreal Paris USA for more details.

a) Cream cleansers

Cleansing is important but for skin showing signs of aging, a cream cleanser works best to replenish moisture lost for a fresher youthful look.

b) Exfoliate

Dead skin dulls your skin and increases free radicals that will age your skin. Exfoliation takes care of this problem. Exfoliation should be done at least daily but can be done daily using BeautyRx progressive peel.

c) Apply a serum

Serums are really concentrated in their ingredients and are lighter so they really get into the skin and get to work. The best serums for anti-aging have hyaluronic acid or retinol.

d) Facial oils in the morning

The good thing about facial oils is that they are packed with anti-aging goodness and they are absorbed into the skin fast so you'll be protected throughout the day. 4-5 drops should do the trick.

e) Eye creams

Take care of crows feet and droopy eyes with strategic eye creams that will really work on your eye region and have you looking as young as ever within no time at all.

f) Use night creams

Your body does a lot of cell repair and regeneration while you sleep and that includes your skin. Using a night cream will help aid this process and you can wake to literary better skin!

g) Use moisturizer on your neck and décolletage too

Don't focus on your face too much and forget about your other parts, neck and chest area because they are just as prone to signs of aging as your face. Go for a product rich in Manuka honey for its long-lasting hydration.

h) Be gentle when taking off makeup

We do need to insist on this one. Be gentle when taking off your makeup no matter how stubborn it is. Hard brushing and rubbing irritate your skin. Micellar water is a great choice to remove makeup gently.
